A cute variation of the deviled egg to serve to the kids. Can also be a great food to serve for breakfast (hence the name), a themed party or Halloween. By the Editors of Easy Home Cooking Magazine.
- 2 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and halved
- 2 teaspoons low-fat mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 radishes, thinly sliced and root ends reserved (the longer the better for the roots)
- 8 raisins or 8 currants
- 1 ounce cheddar cheese, cubed
- spinach (optional) or lettuce leaf (optional)
- Gently scoop egg yolks into small bowl.
- Mash yolks, mayonnaise and salt until smooth.
- Spoon yolk mixture back into egg halves.(Do not heap).
- Place 2 halves, cut side down, on each serving plate. (on top of lettuce or spinach leaves if using)
- Cut two tiny slits near the narrow end of each egg half; position 2 radish slices on (or into) each half for ears.
- Use the root end of each radish to form tails.
- Push raisins (or currants) into each egg half to form eyes.
- Place small pile of cheese in front of each mouse.
This really was cute! Since my eggs were so small, I used dried chokeberries (aronia) which are tiny enough for the eyes. Thanks for sharing this fun recipe!

These were so cute! I omitted the salt and used black pepper and paprika in the yolk mixture instead. I also used dried cranberries for the eyes and nose. Since I was serving on a white dish, I used the lettuce, and it set off the mice wonderfully. Thanks for a keeper!
